Chinese military planes are approaching Taiwan and can reach the Presidential Palace in 3 minutes. Analysis points out that they put pressure on President-elect Lai Ching-te before 520

Just as Secretary of State Blinken emphasized the importance of maintaining peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait before Taiwan's next President Lai Ching-te takes office during his recent meeting with Foreign Minister Wang Yi, Taiwan's Ministry of National Defense announced on Sunday (29th) that 12 military aircraft crossed the Taiwan Strait. It is close to the northern waters of Taiwan, and the nearest distance is 37 miles from Keelung. Former military generals pointed out that Chinese fighter jets can fly to the Presidential Palace in 3 minutes from this distance. Some scholars have analyzed that China is using this kind of military action to tell the United States that the United States will then put pressure on President-elect Lai Ching-te not to make any moves for Taiwan independence after taking office on May 20.

According to a press release issued by the Ministry of National Defense on Sunday (29th), 22 aircraft and 4 warships were active around the Taiwan Strait in the past 24 hours, 12 of which crossed the central line of the strait and entered the northern airspace. The military uses fighter planes, warships and shore-based missiles for surveillance.

Zhang Yanting, former deputy commander of the Air Force, responded to the media and said that China has long refused to recognize the existence of the central line of the Strait, and fighter jets are getting closer and closer to Taiwan. From 43 miles in January this year to 41 miles last week, it is now 37 miles. He questioned that the 37 miles announced by the Ministry of National Defense was suspected of whitewashing the peace.

Zhang Yanting said: "Our military prefers to use Keelung in this regard. In this way, the data will be farther away and everyone will feel more at ease. So it is only about 26 miles away from Tamsui, which is very close. Generally, the flight of a fighter plane takes about 2 minutes. It takes about 3 minutes to get to the Presidential Palace, so it is getting closer. In the future, I estimate that it may be within 30 miles, and it will only be in the single digits from Tamsui.”

Taiwan’s Nationalist Army did not take off in an emergency, but the Communist Army may have already arrived in Taiwan’s sky

Zhang Yanting, a former fighter pilot, pointed out that the emergency takeoff time of Taiwan's fighter jets was 5 minutes for the Ching Kuo and 6 minutes for the Mirage 2000 and F-16. Even before the emergency takeoff, the two planes had already arrived over Taiwan. He believes that Beijing is using a "boiling frog in warm water" strategy to make Taiwanese people accustomed to PLA aircraft approaching Xi.

Zhang Yanting said: "The political effect is very great, because Taiwan has gradually lost its defenses. The most important thing is to have no defenses. What the CCP fights is to "conquer the enemy without fighting." It can win without fighting and the entire army Defeat the enemy. There will be another US presidential election at the end of the year, and the current war in Ukraine and the conflict between Israel and Kazakhstan have left the United States unable to take care of Taiwan. He also sees this."

Analysis: China uses the United States to put pressure on Taiwan

Lai Rongwei, an assistant professor at Longhua University of Science and Technology, said that when U.S. Secretary of State Blinken and Xi Jinping’s foreign minister Wang Yi held talks, the U.S. emphasized that “maintaining peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait is crucial.” However, it could be seen that the scene was cold and everyone spoke their own words, which obviously fell short of expectations. Results. Therefore, China uses military actions to reiterate that Taiwan is an internal matter.

Lai Rongwei said: "He (China) has always believed that there will be collusion with external forces on the Taiwan issue, so through so-called oppressive means, he wants to put pressure on the leader of the so-called external forces, which is of course the United States. It is up to the United States to tell Taiwan's new president Lai Ching-te, don’t do anything that may be extreme, that is, move for Taiwan independence. He knows that peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait are also in the interests of the United States.”

Shu Xiaohuang, an associate researcher at the Institute of National Defense and Security, said that the PLA aircraft is about 37 miles away from Keelung. It has achieved the purpose of continuously compressing Taiwan's airspace in the military. However, it will not fly so close to Taiwan in actual operations because 37 miles away from Taiwan's anti-aircraft missiles. Within the interception range, and the weapons equipped with the aircraft have a range higher than this distance. The political purpose is to continue to exert political pressure on the new government before May 20th. As May 20th approaches, the Communist Army may take more and more similar actions.
